University Centre Farnborough has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
This degree is suitable for students with a foundation degree or HND in a relevant subject who would like to gain a full honours degree.
The education sector increasingly requires staff who can appreciate the implications of the many far-reaching developments currently taking place.
The BA (Hons) in Education (Learning Support) meets this need for practitioners fulfilling a number of different roles within the sector. The main award of the BA (Hons) in Education builds on the appropriate supporting Foundation Degrees, providing a progression route to degree level.
As such, it develops and extends the knowledge base acquired through previous study and professional development and continues to integrate a work-based model in which students are required to reflect upon daily occurrences in the work place and use their experiences to inform and evaluate their own practice. The programme is offered as a full-time honours degree programme and is modular in structure focusing on a number of essential themes in contemporary education and training.
Students on this BA top-up year will study 7 modules (6 at 15 credit points and 1 at 30 credit points)
- Module 3.1 - Introduction to Research
- Module 3.2 - Learning Theory
- Module 3.3 - The Social Context of Education and Training
- Module 3.4 - Comparative Education and Training
- Module 3.5 - Supporting Students with Additional Needs
- Module 3.6 - Understanding Child Behavior
- Module 3.7 - Research Project
Candidates will be assessed on the basis of written assignments for each module and the submission of a completed research project.
